According to government sources, the facility will be one specialized as a cosmetic medical clinic.
Upon completion the clinic will be important to Nevis, said the island’s Premier, Joseph Parry, because 100-150 persons will be employed at the facility. He said doctors, nurses, cooks, cleaners, accountants, gardeners and others will come to this medical unit and earn a living at the center which is slated to begin construction in 2013.
A modern Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) unit will be placed at the medical center and the services of the unit will be charged at reduced rates for locals, it was also pointed out.
“I am told the MRI unit will be the best system in the Eastern Caribbean and if we are to deal with a larger number of affluent clients it has to be,” said Joseph Parry.
During the ceremony, Parry thanked Mr. Don Williams whom he said has worked tirelessly to get the center on Nevis. He said Mr. Don Williams has assisted the Nevis Island Administration with attaining the cosmetic medical center that will boost health tourism on the island.
The cosmetic medical center will be a holiday retreat where people can get cosmetic and dental attention, then relax and recover in the up market destination that Nevis is known for.
